Second year of recognition for CIPR Excellence Awards
The CIPR Excellence Awards – public relations’ most established celebration of creativity and professionalism – have again been recognised by the Association Excellence Awards, which recognise and reward high standards and best practice in professional bodies and trade assocations in the UK.
On Friday 26 February, at the Hilton London Bankside, the 2015 edition of the Institute's flagship international award programme, received a Mark of Excellence for the Best Association Awards Event. This follows last year's triumph in winning the Best Association Awards Event category for the 2014 CIPR Excellence Awards programme.
The 2015 CIPR Excellence Awards, were handed out on Wednesday 3 June in front of more than 700 guests at Old Billingsgate, London, and saw a number of high-profile public health campaigns and organisations acknowledged for their work, including Cancer Research UK, Kirklees Council, St John Ambulance and the Department of Health. Popcorn PR, Man Bites Dog, Hotwire and Alder Hey Children's NHS Trust were also acknowledged as 'outstanding teams'.
The deadline for entering the 2016 CIPR Excellence Awards is on Tuesday 1 March 2016 at 6pm.
Recognition of the CIPR’s achievement shows that we have maintained the benchmark we set in recent years in the face of tough competition. It confirms the CIPR Excellence Awards as a high value experience to enter and attend. I am very pleased with how the team have delivered it working alongside members to set and meet high expectations for the only awards in public relations that reflect a truly professional standard.
